Friday Meeting Important Info

We just got a special invitation to be one of the troops who are videoed for a new clip GNYC is having put together. With that being said, this Friday will NOT be class B uniforms, but instead class A.

Once again, NO class B uniform this coming friday, it is class A.

Also, We will be meeting downstairs as the cubs have their Pinewood Derby in the gym

They will shoot us doing what we normally do, so please be on your best behavior. They will also pick select scouts to “interview” on video about what they like about scouting.

Lastly, there will be a waiver which needs to be signed by those who are filmed. I will post it once I get it (should be later today/tomorrow). PLEASE print a copy, sign it, and send it with your scout.

See you all then, any questions send to Mike

Outstanding Dues

There are a significant number of scouts who owe outstanding dues for the 2014-2015 scout year (and a few from 2013-14 still!). Please note that the remainder of all outstanding dues for this year are now expected to be paid in full.

As of February 1st, 2015, there will be no Board of Reviews given by the committee for your child to receive his next rank unless all arrears are settled.

Please note, that individual scout accounts (pie money, flea market and the like) can be applied towards yearly dues.

If you are not sure if this situation applies to your son, please ask our Treasurer, Henry Zalak at Friday’s meeting.

We just got a special invitation!

A great supporter of Boy Scouts in NYC just passed away. John Whitehead was a Scouter’s Scouter. He joined his Troop at 12 years of age.  Eagle Scout, Distinguished Eagle Scout, GNYC President, Co-Chair of our Board until the day he died on Saturday morning in his sleep at home (at 92 years old).

I invite you to invite your entire Troop to accept the special privilege of representing Scouting at John C. Whitehead’s funeral service.  Please invite your full Troop in full uniform to attend the funeral service.

It will be very important to know as soon as possible if you can accept this invitation so we can plan accordingly.

Our Scouts are not asked to be a Color Guard nor speak at the service. The Scouts in uniform in attendance will simply say it all. Arrive at the church at 9:15 am.
